Does he definitely need to go to er?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Or should we give him sugar salt water?
Expert:  Dr. Yogindra Vasavada replied 7 months ago.

Please give try to oral hydration at home for an hour or two, and if not retaining water, please rush to Er. IV drip will rest his stomach and intestines for healing. Please watch for dehydration like sunken eyes, dry tongue, loose inelastic skin etc. and lack of normal urine flow.
